1.2 Legal basis for processing your personal data

As a general rule, we collect your personal data only to the extent necessary to provide services to you. EU law obliges us to inform the individuals whose data we process about the legal grounds for processing. We rely on one of the following legal bases when processing your personal data:

Basis for performance of the contract. Applies where processing of your data is necessary for the performance of our obligations to you under the contract, e.g. to perform/receive payment for services.

Basis for the legal requirement. This applies where we are required by law or regulation to process your personal data, e.g. for tax accounting purposes, provision of data to public authorities or the police.

Legal basis for consent. In certain cases, we will only process your personal data if we have obtained your prior consent. You can withdraw your consent to processing at any time by contacting us at

Legal basis for legitimate interests. We will process your personal data where we have a legitimate interest in doing so and such processing is not prejudicial to the protection of your interests and rights.

For example, we take the above legitimate interest:
